I'd test it again. It might be a small amount coming from the death of a fish rather than the cause of the fish's death. Either way, in a cycled tank you should never detect any ammonia or nitrites...so I'd suspect a mistest.

Thank the lord. I did a retest 3 times 2 out of the 3 were safe. Corals are thriving so I wouldn't expect too much ammonia

Yeah...they won't thrive if there is any trace of ammonia in the tank. I figured as much. Keep it up.
